I'M NEW

It can be hard to feel at home when you visit a new church. We understand that and we want to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Here is some information that can help.
            
What should I wear?  
Frankly, we don’t care. If you are comfortable, so are we. Khakis, jeans, shorts, or other casual wear is fine. Or if you prefer something dressier, that is fine too. 

Where should I park?  
We have a large parking lot right in front of our entrance. It includes specially marked spaces for handicap near the front door.

What about kids?
We love kids.They are welcomed and included in different, age appropriate ways.

- For infants through age three, we offer our fully staffed Nursery. It is located in the hall to the left of the foyer.

- Children aged four through sixth grade, we have our Children’s Ministry, The Orchard: Growing in Grace located in the children’s area where they experience innovative learning about the faith. Our goal in The Orchard is to bring up our kids to be the next generation of Christ followers.

The Orchard consists of upbeat songs with hand motions or dancing, as well as, slower more worshipful songs.  Our lessons are on the basics of Christianity, such as the Ten Commandments, the Parables, the Fruit of the Spirit, the Sacraments, etc.

 

We want to help children understand and experience Jesus and to become more like Him. We want them to know that He is their best friend, but also, that He is our sovereign God who deserves respect.

 

What is the service like?
Our service starts with an upbeat worship song. usually 2 to 3 songs going from upbeat praise into more intimate worship. Then our pastor leads us all in a brief time of prayer, after which an offering is taken. Another song is sung and then the pastor usually speaks for about 25 – 30 minutes, after which we are dismissed.

On the second Sunday of each month, we take Holy Communion together as a church following the sermon.  All believers are welcome to participate in Holy Communion.
